So I completely agree with the review below. First of all, arriving at an English Pub right off the Ferry was completely unexpected. My trip encountered a turn of events in which I was planning on the fly. I arrived to Koh Phangan much earlier than anticipated. Completely clueless, I grabbed a breakfast beer just to use the WIFI.

I highly recommend Harp bar for motorcycle hire and all your social and dining. After hearing about dodge rentals taking place around the island we put our trust in the harp rentals who advocate genuine honesty with hire. We hired a great motorcycle for excellent value for 3 days and then a further 3 days after realising we couldn't function... More
